Mr Abdella is my favorite teacher at SJ, he is the man and is bery interactive with the class. Tells the funniest and nerdiest jokes
One of my best teachers. Makes everything engaging and fun.
He is the man, hard class if you aren't prepared but is insanely engaging for even trivial and boring things like note taking.
The greatest teacher I have ever had.
he is one of the best teachers i have ever had he makes learning fun
Is an amazing teacher who really helps you understand the lessons, keeps you interested with witty comments and seems to know everything there is to know about history. He makes learning history fun and was very helpful
I absolutely adored Mr. Abdella as a freshman. He's smart, talented, witty, and is one of the few people who actually know how to incorporate Powerpoint into the class correctly. Even though his class was challenging for me due to the subject matter and my terrible project abilities, I enjoyed every minute of his class and would hope to use his techniques if I become a teacher.
A great guy. History could be dull, not with Mr. Abdella. Hilarious, intelligent, and truely awesome.
Mr Abdella is easily the best teacher I have ever had in my school career. He is helpful in every way and prepares us in our respective subjects extremely well. Easily worthy of 5 stars.
AMAZING TEACHER. KEEPS CLASS INTERSTING
I loved his class b/c he was great at presenting material and mixing in funny things, like his musical interludes for APMEH. He's great at preparing you for the AP exam, reminds you during the year that the exam is the target, and teaches you helpful tricks and strategies. However, he's curt, comes across as dismissive, and a bit of an egomaniac. He also speaks on religion too much in a biased way, instead of being unbiased. Not helpful on an individual level. Kinda seems like he hates his job.
Mr. Abdella is an amazing guy. He will support you with any services you need, and made me love history. Clearly he is the most professional and experienced history guy at SJ. Love this man and he is an amazing person in Model UN as well.
Mr. Abdella is by far the greatest teacher Ive had. I absolutley love him, in his class you gain alot of information because he knows everything. Along the way you still have fun, and every time you see that you have him next is like a sigh of relief knowing you wont have to sit through a boring lecture. Hopefully I will have him next year for APMEH
The pincer formation at the battle of Canae. The proverbial wheelbarrow behind Henry V as he led his army to Agincourt. The flickering of the lights in room 100 to represent Charlemagne as the sole light during the dark ages. Archimedes staring at his circles in his final moments. I had Mr. Abdella as a freshman in 03-04, and compared to my current Harvard professors, Abdella has remained the greatest influence. His teaching style is a work of art, it must be videotaped and shared for others.
funny, smart, difficult. will prepare you
Mr. Abdella is easily the best teacher ive ever had and the best teacher ill ever have. His teaching style is purely talented. The student will learn and have fun even if he doesnt want to. He is legendary and everyone knows it. he is the man, always helpful and especially funny. Ive had some memorable and fun times in his class
Mr. Abdella is an awesome guy and one of my favorite teachers, but APMEH is really hard so be prepared. In addition, from what I've heard from other friends, Mr. Wilson (the alternative APMEH teacher)
Mr. Abdella is among the BEST history teachers ever. He knows sooo much, he teaches in great detail and clarity, and is a pretty funny dude. Make no mistake, APMEH is pretty difficult/challenging, but
If St. John's were to have a human mascot, Mister Abdella would be that mascot. He is a teacher, friend, and student of the World, Mister Abdella works tirelessly to make sure every student learns.
makes history fun to learn, its not all about the dates
The best teacher I've ever had. This man could describe how paint dries and I will be on the edge of my seat
Mr. Abdella is amazing, all teachers should be like him. he is funny and he actually makes school fun
Mr. Abdella should be the template for every other teacher. He's funny, sarcastic (in a good way), and laid back. I had him for freshmen and AP. He is relaxed and easygoing, yet challenging. Great guy
favorite teacher. love history. i'm in un, so i'm biased, but mr abdella is a really cool guy. more personable than any other teacers i've encountered.
Definitely one of the best teachers I have ever had. I had him sophomore year in MEH, and went to Chicago with him, Marsan and Williams for Model UN. Great teacher, cool guy.
Any teacher who can perfectly synch an entire lecture to music deserves to be #1.
Abdella is the most talented teacher at SJ. He brings true passion, life, and humor to every class. If every teacher hac his gift, no one would ever complain about going to school again. Rock on, Mr a
he was really nice but i couldnt understand the subject.
how can you not like this guy???? sure, hes tough, but then, this is a college prep school! very cool guy!!! deserves to be #1!!!! just don't tick him off or he'll give your next test in greek ^^
Mr. Abdella will give you tough assignments, give everlasting homework, and impossible tests. Yet, through the year, you learn how to get past that, and have great fun at Mr. Abdella's sense of humor!
One of the greatest high school history teachers on the planet.
Best Teacher at SJ, period, there is nothing else to say
Honestly one of the best teachers I've ever had. Take his Greek and Roman seminar...it's the only way to have him as a teacher once you're older than a sophomore.
